Is it legal? Dunno, probably not, also depends on setup/weights
Is it safe? See above
Does it wobble, not in my experience
I've always had twin axle trailers for the redundancy factor. As a rule of thumb, I spec up a single axle trailer capable of carrying the intended load & then add another axle, this has saved my hide several times.
